How to Allow Pop-ups

How to Allow Pop-ups in FirefoxWith most modern browsers, the idea of having pop-up advertisements is a thing of the past.  However, sometimes you do need to see a pop-up window.  Most often I see this with websites that have old membership areas that haven’t been updated in a long time.  I also have this problem on my bank’s website too.  So how can you tell Firefox to let certain domains show pop-up windows?

Here are the steps you will need to follow:

To access the pop-up blocker settings:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, click on the Firefox button and then select Options
  2. Select the Content panel.

In the content panel:

  • Block pop-up windows: Uncheck this to disable the pop-up blocker altogether.
  • Exceptions: This is a list of sites that you want to allow to display pop-ups.
    The dialog has the following choices:
    • Allow: Click this to add a website to the exceptions list.
    • Remove Site: Click this to remove a website from the exceptions list.
    • Remove All Sites: Click this to remove all of the websites in the exceptions list.

So there you have it, now you should be able to view pop-ups on the websites you add to the exceptions list.
